Pizza Party

by Stephanie Calmenson

Kindergarten Kids: Riddles, Rebuses, Wiggles, Giggles, and More! by Stephanie Calmenson

Square box.
Round pie.
Triangle slices.
I’m not shy…

I’ll take a slice.
I bet it’s great.
How many slices?
I count eight.

Two pies.
Eight plus eight.
Sixteen slices.
Pizza’s great.

Crusty, saucy,
Stringy, cheesy,
Tasty pizza
Sure does please me!
